Thrifty Thursday-Got Pyrex?





Do you love vintage?  Are you all about the retro look?
Have a thing for old kitchen tools?
I recently read an article in
about this wonderful website called Pyrex Love.






It's always a thrill for me to find old Pyrex containers
at the thrift store.  This glassware, which is made in the USA,
is heavy-duty and long lasting.
In fact, it's still going strong after generations have handed it down.
Things just aren't made the way they used to be
and I enjoy collecting these quality and functional pieces.


Here's a snippet from their fascinating site:

"We’ve tried to provide an online community for glassware collectors 
who are interested primarily in Vintage Pyrex
We post about our own Pyrex finds as well other pieces 
that readers have come across. We have a Pyrex reference guide 
 in which we try to list the different patterns and pieces 
you might come across. We are expanding that section 
as time permits and are also working on a FAQ."

 



It's good to know that as my collection grows,
there is a place I can go to learn about the history
of the pieces I purchase.

Have fun browsing  here.
